Manchester United make approach to sign African defender

Manchester United have made an approach to Paris Saint-Germain about the availability of right-back Serge Aurier, according to reports in France.

French newspaper L’Equipe, as quoted by the Sun, is reporting that the Red Devils have made contact with the Ligue 1 club about the possibility of signing the 24-year-old.

The same report states that the right-back is now unsure about his situation at PSG after the arrival of Dani Alves at the club this week.

The story also says that Ivory Coast international Aurier told PSG manager Unai Emery he wanted to leave the French capital at the end of last season.

The article also states that the likes of Barcelona and Tottenham have also shown an interest in Aurier, but that he could also be set to stay at PSG beyond the summer transfer window.

Manchester United confirmed their second signing of the summer on Monday when they concluded a deal to bring striker Romelu Lukaku to the club from Everton.

The Red Devils won the Europa League and EFL Cup in Jose Mourinho’s first season in charge last term.
